This is my last week of work before my maternity leave starts! This fact has helped keep me from diving into the winter depression that I get at the change of season (and pretty much all winter). Knowing that I won't have to drive on the horrible roads every day and night does wonders for my mental health :) Can't believe we are finally this close! We are also starting a prepping for parenting class tonight. It's a 5 week class that gives the Christian view point of Baby Wise. We should be well educated by the time baby girl joins us... hopefully it'll help us out in the long run!
Needless to say I am really looking fwd to the end of this week! Life will be very different and I'm excited for this new change :) My parents are driving out on Monday for Thanksgiving, but are prepared to come earlier if baby decides to obey her momma and come early (not holding my breath on that one.. she'll be as stubborn as I was (*ahem or am) I'm sure). It'll be fun to be able to spend the days with my parents instead of only evenings! Though it will be a change, I've been working full time for about 10 years and am used to bringing in an income. People say that I'll still be working as a mom and longer hours, but I don't view motherhood as a job. It's just life!
Soon my posts will be about other things than pregnancy :) Can't wait!
(I keep forgetting that there is a holiday next week (Thanksgiving). It's weird to not be counting down the days till I have a 4 day weekend!)
